And, he wasn't alone.

Jared returned to school on Monday with many supporters greeting him outside.

"There's a lot of people wearing this same exact shirt, showing great, great support and I really appreciate it," Jared said before walking in to school.

According to WOWKTV, Marcum returned to class, fresh off of suspension, wearing the shirt that got him suspended from school after a dispute with a teacher.  The shirt that began the controversy has an image of a gun on the front.

In the incident that sparked the controversy, Marcum was arrested by local police and faces two potential charges, obstructing an officer and disrupting the education process.

However, Jared's lawyer, Ben White says that "Charges aren't officially filed or brought until the prosecuting attorney's signs off on them and they don't do that willy nilly.  They do that after a thorough investigation."

That investigation is currently underway, led by juvenile prosecutor, Sabrina Deskins.
